Communities have vast amounts of knowledge and contribute to learning in many ways. This site provides students and educators a forum for accessing this capacity through online tutoring for students, live professional learning sessions focussed on Indigenous topics during the weekend, access to Knowledge Keepers during the school day to support learning, and a virtual book club titled, Beyond Words, which provides worldwide community engagement in literacy focussed on Indigenous text.
In response to school closures, Think Indigenous founder, Chris Scribe, launched a Facebook group that provides daily online learning opportunities for children K-8 from Indigenous educators that have come together across Turtle Island.
